An odd IRS sex lawsuit has been filed against a female agent. The claim is that the IRS agent asked for sex in exchange for giving a man lower tax penalties on his audit. According to a report from Wednesday (Feb. 6), Vincent Burroughs filed the federal lawsuit in January.
There are a lot of allegations being reported in this lawsuit, beginning with Dora Abrahamson (the IRS agent) acting inappropriately on more than one occasion. Burroughs states that she contacted him by phone at first, began flirting with him over the phone, and even sent a photo of herself in her underwear. That photo reportedly also showed Abrahamson putting her hands in "a particularly provocative position."
The allegations don't end there, though, as Abrahamson is then accused of showing up at his house and propositioning Burroughs with an offer of no penalty on his audit as the benefit he could get from the encounter. The two eventually did have sex back in September of 2011, but Burroughs didn't file his complaint until January of 2013. He didn't contact the authorities or any other IRS agents before submitting this lawsuit, so there are a lot of unanswered questions in this story.
This IRS sex lawsuit could end up being put in front of a jury now if a judge allows it to get that far.
